a pound of special b is a lot but maybe that's what you are after. other than that it looks very much like a citra pale ale i make, love citra hops.

That's a lot of fermentables for one lonely pack of Notty. I agree about the special B... Roasted malts are powerful in both color and flavor.

Recipie's got good bones though. I would be inclined to push some of those Citra forward in the schedule. 30 min or more is still a bittering add as far as I'm concerned.

special b has more of a raisin or dried fruit flavor. crystal 10-40 malt would give it a more of a caramel taste. i used a pound of special b in a beer and regretted it.

With it being 5% of the grain how how of the raisin or dried fruit flavor will come out?
plus it could go hand in hand with the Citra or not It is still better then
off the shelf beer and it is one of a kind beer

At 5% you'll be fine, when I used it at that level it was a nice backbone of crystal like taste, I too made a beer similar to this but minus the Vienna and instead used same amount of British pale malt, independent tasters (a friend took a sixer to some pro brEwers and "tastes real nice wouldn't change a thing") liked it. Don't be afraid, your well within the 10% max use as suggested by Beersmith.

I'd move some of the hop additions more towards the end of the boil, like 20 and 10 minute. If you need to increase the bittering addition some to keep IBU's and OG balanced then that is fine. Love the flavor/aroma of Citra so I'd use most of it in that area of the boil.
